Becoming Beauvoir – A Talk by Kate Kirkpatrick

A symbol of liberated womanhood, Simone de Beauvoir’s unconventional relationships inspired and scandalised her generation. A philosopher, writer, and feminist icon, she won prestigious literary prizes and transformed the way we think about gender with The Second Sex. But despite her successes, she wondered if she had sold herself short.

Her liaison with Jean-Paul Sartre has been billed as one of the most legendary love affairs of the twentieth century. But for Beauvoir it came at a cost: for decades she was dismissed as an unoriginal thinker who ‘applied’ Sartre’s ideas. In recent years new material has come to light revealing the ingenuity of Beauvoir’s own philosophy and the importance of other lovers in her life.

Kate Kirkpatrick will discuss her ground-breaking biography that draws on never-before-published diaries and letters to tell the fascinating story of how Simone de Beauvoir became herself.

Tickets available at the door (6.45pm). No advance sales.
Entry: £8/£5 (concessions)
Season tickets available for six events: £30/£20 (concession)

When sixteen year old Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) accidently wishes away her baby brother Toby (Toby Froud), she must solve a labyrinth in thirteen hours, and rescue him from Jareth the Goblin King (David Bowie) in this 1986 fantasy film.


Nietzsche wrote that all philosophy is autobiographical, and in her vividly compelling, myth-shattering biography, Sue Prideaux brings readers into the world of this brilliant, eccentric, and deeply troubled man, illuminating the events and people that shaped his life and work. From his placid, devoutly Christian upbringing—overshadowed by the mysterious death of his father—through his teaching career, lonely philosophizing on high mountains, and heart-breaking descent into madness, Prideaux will discuss central elements of Nietzsche’s intellectual and emotional life.

She will also explore how Nietzsche’s sister Elizabeth, a rabid German nationalist and anti-Semite, manipulated his texts and turned the Nietzsche archive into a destination for Nazi ideologues.
Prideaux will offer a new and refreshing perspective on history’s most misunderstood philosopher.

Tickets available at the door (6.45pm). No advance sales.
Entry: £8/£5 (concessions)
Season tickets available for six events: £30/£20 (concession)
